Report

Terry Smith’s Manchester Spartans entered the European League – Continental Conference in 1993, losing two games to Hamburg Blue Devils. They changed their name to the Euro Spartans to reflect that they were not only playing in a European League now, rather than the BAFA member league the NDMA, but also that they were playing their home games at Saffron Lane in Leicester.

They lost the Semi-Final 0-41 to the Hamburg Blue Devils, who went on to meet fellow Germans Munich Cowboys in the Final after they had triumphed in overtime in the second semi-final against Cologne Crocodiles. The Hamburg Blue Devils won the Continental Conference Final 31-21.
